Drone filming at Luton Airport in Covid-19 Lockdown

Posted May 14, 2020 No Comments

With the reduced number of aircraft landing and taking off due to COVID-19 we had a rare opportunity to fly our drone with our PfCO (Permission for Commercial Operations) and do some filming in between aircraft movements around the stands and the runway.

We’ve filmed at Luton Airport a few times over the past 3 years and it was very eerie to see all the aircraft grounded. You can almost hear a pin drop.

A big thank you to AIRDAT and Luton Airport’s air traffic control and airside operations for making this possible! We made another video about the recent national lockdown.

The Time We Stopped | Positivity within the Coronavirus

Posted May 1, 2020 No Comments

The current coronavirus lockdown situation can seem a bit scary – but it’s up to us to make the most of it and take as much positivity from it that we can. We even managed to visit an empty Luton airport!

Over the past few weeks, we have seen communities come together whilst individuals have kept their distance. We are all in this together and together we will get through it. This short video showcases the effect Coronavirus is having on the day to day lives of individuals and families living through the COVID-19 lockdown in England. In this video we see NHS workers, homeowners, children and key workers helping to keep our economy going.

We produced this with a fast turnaround of one week so we could post it on our social media whilst it was still current. It’s been well received on facebook with 4 thousand people reached. This is like what we achieved for DFDS!
